Today I am linking up with Five Minute Friday and the prompt for this week is: Overcome. So, for five minutes, I will share with you what comes to mind. Are you ready? Take Heart!
The very first thing that came to mind when I saw the prompt Overcome, was Mandisa’s song, Overcomer. I love that song and her message. She shared at a concert I was at earlier this year how she was struggling with depression and God’s plan as she had lost a good friend to cancer. Her testimony was compelling, and her message is for us all, we all can be overcomers!
The very next thing I thought of was the verse that talked about Jesus overcoming the world. I looked it up, and it is John 16:33:
“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world.” John 16:33 NIV
Final Thoughts on Take Heart
I don’t know what trouble you are facing today, or what troubles may come tomorrow. We are not promised a comfortable life, but we are given the promise that God is with us, and He will not forsake us. So, Take Heart! He has overcome the world!!!
